We’re traveling to Salt Lake City, Utah, to speak with Gary Harter, the executive director of the Utah Department of Veteran and Military Affairs (UDVMA). Stay tuned as he reveals why this western state is a perfect place for veterans and their families to call home.

The Utah Department of Veterans and Military Affairs serves veterans and their families by opening doors to benefits, education opportunities, jobs, and more, while also advocating for Utah’s military bases and service members. In addition, the UDVMA offers a variety of services to assist veterans in obtaining the benefits they may be eligible for and provides counseling and assistance to veterans and their dependents.

Later, we’re traveling up the road and through the mountains to talk to Caitlin and Shane Bognaski about their time in the military and why they chose to move to Utah to raise their family.
